I snap back to reality from my daydream -
Looking over at the box from the podium at which I stand.
There is a sea of tears flowing from the eyes of my family -
As well as from my own.
I feel as if my lungs have been crushed.
Knowing the painful truth of why I'm standing here.
After the readings of scriptures and nice comments,
We all line up to take one last look
At a woman who forever changed our lives.
